Patty Mooney has been writing poetry since the age of 15. After taking a hiatus of writing poems for about a decade (2000 – 2010), she returned to it in order to work through the grief of losing both her father and a brother in 2010. She wanted a clear-cut delineation from the mood and scope of her earlier work. This “new style” occurred when she began to write Air Poetry, a way of writing that is somewhat foreign to traditionalist poets in that the Air Poet must leave their own mind and open up to the conversations of others. There’s gold in the air that falls out of the mouths of conversationalists, and it’s fun to collect these genuine nuggets. Air poems by nature are short, funny, whimsical, poignant and sometimes very deep. Patty has started to entertain a worldwide audience with Air Poetry at http://www.airpoetry.com and at http://facebook.com/airpoetry where anyone can post an Air Poem. Patty is a video producer by trade and loves to mountain bike with her husband in the San Diego outback.
